Match Report: Somerset Cup Vs Backwell (A)
On Tuesday the 18th of January Hugh Sexeys U13 team travelled to Backwell school to continue their cup run. On a very difficult pitch to play football on Hugh Sexey started on the front foot and were rewarded when George curled the ball into the far corner to put the team 1-0 up. Hugh Sexey continued to put the pressure on in the first half and forced the Backwell goalkeeper into a number of fine saves. Hugh Sexey started the second half like they did the first when a fine pass from Alfie found George and he slotted the ball into the back of the net to make the score 2-0. Backwell then threw everything to try and get a goal but some resolute defending from the team prevented them from doing so. With 5 minutes to go Backwell finally managed to get the ball in the back of the net to set up an intense finish for Hugh Sexey. But in the last minute of the game Liam was played through and sealed Hugh Sexeys place in the quarter final of the competition. It was a great performance from the team who really showed their intent from minute 1. We now look forward to welcoming Millfield on Tuesday the 1st of February to try and book our place in the Semi Final.
